First publication dedicated to Christian Marclay's photographic practice, this monograph examines the role and status of photography in Marclays' work and gathers a large selection of images, critical and historical texts by photo and music specialists, an interview with the artist, and an essay by John Armleder. A way to retrace the whole of the artist's visual and musical activity, as Marclay's images have the property to synthesize the main concepts that shape his work.
Known as the inventor of “turntablism,” visual artist, performer and composer Christian Marclay (born 1955 in San Rafael, California, lives and works in New York) explores the relationship between visual and sonic phenomena through an innovative work in collage, sculpture, installation, photography, video, and performance.
